The Seahawks are looking to bounce back after a tough road loss to the Bengals. Can they do it against another undefeated team. Playing at home will help.
Kick off is set for 4:05 PM ET with Seattle looking to make a statement about where they are in the contender pecking order. They might be slipping.
There are two undefeated teams in the NFC South, supposedly one of the weaker divisions in the league. Carolina is probably the less surprising of the two and they have had an extra week to prepare for Seattle, a team they are familiar with but haven’t beaten the last few seasons.
As always the key is Cam Newton. His numbers don’t scream elite but he has become one of the better “winners” in the league the last couple of seasons. He won’t be intimidated by Seattle.
Carolina always wants to run the ball and they are 4th in the league in that category this season. Newton is a part of that and will probably have to break one or two.
The defense has not been as sharp as in past seasons and they are hoping that Luke Kuechly will be available – he is battling concussion symptoms. They will look to pressure Russell Wilson.
The Panthers have lost to Seattle 4 times since 2012. Three of those have been by five or less points.
The Seahawks are not supposed to lose games like they did last week. Sure they were on the road but with their power running game and stingy defense they are not a likely candidate to give up 17 unanswered in the fourth quarter.
There was no Beast Mode last week as Marshawn Lynch was out. He is probable this week but there was no shortage of effective running last week thanks to Thomas Rawls who put up his second 100 yard game of the last three weeks.
With the Seahawks back below .500 look for an extra determined effort.
That means this should be a hard hitting affair, which is par for this matchup which has seen neither team score more than 16 points in three of the last four meetings.
Seattle looks like a solid bet to bust up the Panthers perfect start but I am not a big fan of the number here. Their offense has been unreliable.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Carolina ATS
The last three times these teams met in the regular season were low scoring games. That makes it tougher to cover by a TD.
